Guilty plea for thief

A woman who pleaded guilty to stealing “a remote control of some variety and some Oil of Olay” from the Peninsula Village London Drugs was handed a year’s probation and 15 hours of community service.

Thi Bich Loi Hoang received the sentence Oct. 23 in Surrey Provincial Court, in connection with the June 16, 2012 theft.

Judge Michael Hicks also ordered Hoang – who told the judge through a translator that she has two children and works part-time at Tim Hortons – to keep the peace, report to a probation officer and complete counselling as directed.

The community service, Hicks added, must be completed within three months.

In rendering the sentence, Hicks told Hoang he took into account the fact that she has two previous convictions.

The value of items taken in the June 16 incident was $199, the court heard.

Hoang’s co-accused, Thi Tuyet Phung, is scheduled to appear in Surrey Provincial Court on Nov. 20.
